Can I tell you a Tiko/diotamaceous story?
After Tiko was poisoned a couple weeks ago,
I was supposed to watch his poop and tell the doctor when it was clean of blood.
(Yucky story, sorry,)
Well, he had several white plateworms, yikes, in each one. So, I doubled up on his diotamaceous earth, giving it to him twice a day, and the worms are completely gone after three days. I am So happy!
And so is Tiko! Back to his mischievous self!
1 large yucca root, peeled and chopped
1 qt. water
4 c. Baby greens
1 sliced red bell pepper
2 tomatoes, chopped
2 T. Olive oil or mayonnaise
2 sliced green onions,
juice of one lemon,
salt and a sprinkle of cayenne
Reduce heat to simmer for 30 minutes or until yucca is tender. Remove from heat, drain using a colander. When yucca is cool enough to handle, chop yucca into small cubes and place into a large bowl. Add greens, tomatoes, mayonnaise, red onion, red bell pepper, green onion, celery, lemon juice, salt and cayenne pepper.
Word of the Day – gusano – worms
Tip of the Day – Give the diotamaceous earth by weight. A tablespoons for humans, and surprisingly, two for big dogs like Tiko.
